UC Global Exchange – application deadline 1 September

Do your OE with UC!

Don’t miss your chance to apply for UC’s Global Exchange programme and discover the life changing experience that comes with studying overseas – applications for Semester 2 2020 close Sunday 1 September.

Our Global Exchange programme is a unique opportunity, allowing

you to study for either a semester or a year at one of our many partner universities, as part of your UC degree! And with over 60 partner universities around the globe you can choose to study in some amazing locations, including Singapore, France and Denmark, to the UK, USA and more.

The great thing about our Global Exchange programme is that you pay your tuition fees to UC and not to the partner university. We also offer a travel award to eligible students participating in the 2020 Global Exchange programme (terms and conditions apply.)

Jake McConnell studied towards his Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering on exchange at University of Colorado-Boulder in 2019.

“DO IT. Make it work, and everywhere overseas is a great time! I have a whole new set of friends (like family) overseas in Colorado. The exchange opened my eyes to a whole new culture and way of socialising!”

Alex Holmes studied for a semester in Austria on exchange at WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) towards his Bachelor of Commerce. He is now a Master of Commerce student.

“Academically my exchange gave me a different perspective through not only my courses, but also through the different perspectives and knowledge that my friends had; I saw it as a really great opportunity to go and experience other cultures while still at UC. There are so many cool places to see and so many things to do so make sure you give it a go!”
